Between a Rock and a Hard Race

The Finn Class at the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition

by Robert Deaves
Hardback

Between a Rock and a Hard Race takes the reader on a four-year journey through the eyes of the Finn class athletes who campaigned for and took part in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. It begins on a hill in Weymouth and follows the highs and lows of most of the sailors as they journey towards Rio.

It offers some fascinating analysis of managing an Olympic campaign, with extensive comments from many sailors, including all three medalists, as well as the coach of the eventual gold medalist.

Much of the content is adapted from the hundreds of Finn Class press releases and interviews that were issued between 2012 and 2016, but these have been woven into a tight narrative with exclusive extra content and insight.

It is probably the most in-depth book ever released about an Olympic sailing competition, and the challenges the athletes faced to stand on the top of the podium.
